Geneva County will Remain Dry

By less than one-percentage point turned down a wet initiative that would have allowed alcohol sales.

Besides the presidential and congressional races, voters here said wet/dry brought them to the polls.

Those who initiated the vote spent nearly three-years collecting more than two-thousand signatures to get it on the ballot.

Despite losing by 91 votes out of nearly 1,200 cast, organizers felt they got their message across that Geneva County is losing desperately needed tax revenue to surrounding counties.

Fourteen of the 26 voting precincts voted against the wet initiative, while 12 precincts supported it.
